to support horse muscle tone
Every horse, regardless of work level and age, needs the right amount of protein to maintain a healthy and toned muscle structure. Wafer Fioc Proteic is ideal for all work horses even in the medium/light range, for example those used for stable work, short rides and trekking, young horses that need to build up muscle tone and senior non-work horses that need to maintain a healthy muscle structure. It is beneficial in diets with low-quality forage since it balances protein requirements, giving the horse shape and energy.
Wafer Fioc Proteic ensures a complete and balanced protein supply thanks to its high plant-based protein content in addition to the usual carbohydrates (such as hay). Wafer Fioc Proteic also includes minerals and vitamins much needed by the horse.

Did you know that…
Raw fats: are a source of energy and must be commensurate with the daily energy needs of animals.
Crude fibre (or raw cellulose): is essential for horses since it promotes chewing and therefore digestion and intestinal motility.
Crude ash: are the inorganic component, i.e. the minerals contained in the ingredients of food. They are called “crude ashes” because, if we incinerate the food, they would be the part that remains (the ash, in fact), while the organic component would be completely burned. For example: Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium.

Administering for heavy-work sport horses: administer up to 2kg of Wafer Fioc Proteic per day depending on the horse’s level of work, in addition to the normal forage and feed according to the veterinarian’s instructions.
The best time to administer Wafer Fioc Proteic is straight after exercise (even light) or in the morning, so that it can be exploited throughout the day, while the horse is active.
Guidolin Horses Tips
We recommend that you always follow the advice of your veterinarian for feeding your horse.
Reducing or even eliminating protein from the diet could potentially harm the horse’s psycho-physical health, since it would not only cause a loss of muscle mass but also affect the horse’s strength, post-work recovery speed and propensity for work. Moreover, a lack of protein might contribute to muscle weakening in the long run, since the muscle is not receiving the nourishment it needs to properly function.
A protein deficiency can lead to a loss of muscle trophism even if the horse is active, causing the muscle to appear hollow and lacking in tone.
The horse will feel more muscle pain after work and thus appear stiffer, listless and sweat more than it should.
Protein is vital to a horse’s muscle structure at all stages of its life, from a young foal to an adult and eventually senior horse.
Only in the case of heavy-work horses might it be necessary to further balance the total protein content.
FOALS: It promotes normal bone and muscle development during growth.
YOUNG AND MATURE HORSES, whether light-work or competition horses: It promotes improved muscle tone and strength, rapid post-work recovery and a good propensity for work.
SENIOR HORSES normally fed only hay: It helps maintain the horse’s muscle structure, improving the quality of the ration in case of poor-quality hay.
A diet that meets the horse’s protein requirements will have the positive effect of increasing its muscle volume, making the horse more resilient to work and countering fatigue.
The horse’s neck, back, croup and thigh muscles will increase in volume, making the animal appear visibly rounder overall (not just in the belly). This important increase will be most noticeable in work horses.
Hay is often mistakenly thought of as an empty food, much like salad for people, but this is not the case: horses are herbivores and, therefore, digest the fibre and entire carbohydrate content contained in the hay. So for horses, hay is a carbohydrate-rich food. As a result, eating too much hay can cause the horse to gain weight, potentially affecting its health.
The excessive intake of carbohydrates and cereals can also cause the horse to become initially over-sensitive, euphoric and unmanageable, but lacking in long-term energy without a well-balanced diet.
Proteins, on the other hand, offer long-term energy to the muscle without affecting the nervous system.
It is also true that alfalfa should never be given without grass forage but rather at a proportion of around 20–30% of the total hay ration.
If too much hay is fed and the dose is subsequently reduced to reach the proper dosage, the horse might continue looking for food and show signs of insatiable hunger in the search for more nutrients, including protein.
Horses have a self-regulating mechanism, which is scientifically unknown, but a well-fed horse will definitely be a calm horse and not desperate for food.
The horse should not be constantly hungry and should be lively and full of energy, without being unmanageable.
